Soldering Simon PTH

If you’ve never soldered before, this is the class for you! We’ve been teaching soldering a lot over the past few years - the Simon PTH (which means the easier kind of soldering) kit is a combination of everything we’ve learned. This course teaches soldering and is recommended for the true beginner. This is a hands-on class where the students learn techniques to help them solder. Soldering can be daunting for the first solder joint, then the 2nd solder joint is not so bad, and by the time you’ve assembled the Simon game, you will be quite confident and proficient in basic soldering skills. This class gives students confidence in dealing with electronics as well as a fun game they can take home.

Materials included in this class are:

Prerequisites: None! The class price includes the Simon Kit and everything you will need. Ages 8-16 (with parent) and up.

What to bring: You may want to bring a bite to eat. The class can run to 7:30 or 8:00 PM. SparkFun will provide all the tools, irons and solder.
